TGCDT March 2020 Blog Hop - Spring Tulips Are A Poppin'

Tulips Are A Poppin

I awoke the other morning to the first spring robins chirping on the lawn - a sure sign that winter will soon be over and that spring flowers will be popping their heads up through the soil after a long peaceful nap. Easter and Mother's Day are just around the corner too, so what better time to work with the fun Timeless Tulips Bundle - stamp set and punch combo - to create a couple cards and a fun Easter Table Topper that the kids can easily make.

I have three great projects for you again in this month's Gentlemen Crafters Blog Hop - one with only the punch - one with stamps and a little DSP - and one with the stamps-punch bundle using a colour blending technique that really shows off the detail of the tulip stamps.  So grab some paper and ink and follow me along.

Thank you Jackie, I had not thought of them specifically as night lights, but yes they would make great little lights for a bedside table. Safe for kids! A great idea!
